Well you must understand two things.
[*]I made my character a tank, so sneaking wasn't really my forte.
[*]I only got to level 3, so if sneaking from the face was possible, I probably wouldn't have been able to do so that early in the game.
So in a word, I don't know.
No problem, thanks for taking the time and answering .
You can, but as a melee char you either need to be invisible or attack from the back otherwise he can see you when you attack.
Plus if you have watched some of the leaks you would have seen that sneaking up to someone isn't that easy because they can detect you even if they don't look at you.
A successful sneak attack stuns your opponent if you then use a power attack he gets knockdown.
Thank you irons - actually, the sneak-attack-from-the-front-thing as something I wanted to know specifically for ranged attacks; staying hidden should be easier then (in the leaks I saw, the players were mostly detected when quite near their opponent).
